The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

Research Assistant in Computational Linguistics, Ref: 07473/KR

The Interaction, Media and Communication group (IMC) in the Department of
Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London is seeking a full time
researcher to work for one year starting 1 January 2008 or as soon as
possible thereafter on a new ESRC interdisciplinary project 'Dynamics of
Conversational Dialogue', a joint project between King's College London
Philosophy Department and Queen Mary Computer Science Department.

The primary focus of the 3-year project is on ellipsis, in particular on
the way in which, in conversation, turns are routinely fragmented and
distributed across interlocutors. The goal of the project is to develop,
implement and test a model of dialogue which reflects as closely as
possible the incremental nature of human language processing. Further
information about the project can be found at:
http://www.kcl.ac.uk/research/groups/ds/projects.html

The ideal candidate will be a computational linguist or cognitive scientist
with an interest in computational semantics and pragmatics of dialogue and
experience in Prolog-based linguistic parsing and psycholinguistic
experimentation. The position requires a postgraduate qualification in
computational linguistics, cognitive science, natural language processing,
or equivalent. Applications should have a demonstrated capacity to define
and implement a Prolog-based parser/generator and to conduct individual and
collaborative research consonant with an interest in developing
implemented, incremental computational models of conversational dialogue.

Salary will be in the range of £27,813-£32,690 per annum depending on
qualifications and experience. Please note that this post is subject to
approval. Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work
in the UK in accordance with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1999.

More information about the IMC group at Queen Mary can be found at
